That is easily the most beautiful quilt I've ever seen!  You've got some serious skills. Smiley

ama and KarmicLollipop, thank you so much!  and KarmicLollipop, you can totally do this. I actually find crazy quilts to be much easier than other types of quilts, because you don't have to be precise. And best of all - there are NO rules!

This is gorgeous! I have been wanting to do a crazy quilt forever, but I have primarily cottons and was afraid I would be not doing a crazy quilt justice. Plus I'm not really an embellishment girl. This has given me inspiration, and I may just have to get off of my butt and get one done! Thank you so much for sharing this!

Ezri_B, I absolutely love using quilting cottons in a crazy quilt, the prints add a dimension of texture that replaces the texture you get from wools and velvets.  Plus, the cotton is much easier to work with.  I'm really not one for handwork, but you can easily learn 2 or 3 stitches, and it does go surprisingly fast. Or, you can always use your sewing machine with a thicker thread, if it's new enough to have fancy stitches.  Either way, the time is well worth it.

Thanks. I actually love embroidery it  is the beading and findings and lace that I tend to shy away from
